In about 2 weeks the finals of this years Real Toughness contest are going to take place at the Tokyo Dome City Hall. As usual its going to be a big battle of Breakdance, Skateboard and BMX. The Real Toughness Challenge at Murasaki Park in Tokyo (June 18) was the qualification round for the finals. Above is the highlight edit of the qualification round. The top 8 riders make it to the finals (Japanese result list). Takuya Higa took the first place.
The IGI Crew (Taku, Ben and Dub) reunited in Bordeaux which is an excellent place for a little team meeting ;-) Awesome spots and great weather! Visit Bordeaux if you get the chance. The guys made good use of the spots, Dub is obviously killing it on the back wheel. Enjoy!
Yukipkoproject dropped another cool edit titled "Wonderful Guys 2016"! The Japanese description reads like some kind of old school police movie and if you watch the outro of the video then it all makes sense ;-) Before that you get 4 sick combos from some of Japan's finest riders including Moto's hitchhiker to backpacker kickflip.
If you are coming to Germany for the BMX Cologne contest then you could hit another contest with a little detour to the Netherlands on Friday (July 1): "From 30 June until 3 July 2016 Pro Freestyle returns to celebrate action sports for the second time. After the first edition (The Hague, 2015) we are very excited to have Heerlen-Limburg as the first 2016 host city. Expect a 4 day full action sports tournament both pro and amateur in Skateboard, BMX Park, BMX Street, BMX Flat, Scoot, Inline and MTB Park."
There is a 1200 EUR pro purse and the list of confirmed riders already looks good (Dez, Dom, Matthias, Alex, Ucchie...).
Keelan is not listening. He clearly mastered nose manuals and we already asked to move to on to the next trick ;-) However, it's happening again! Another insane nose manual session with 200% bike control. Enjoy!
Only 10 days left! Paul Dezeix is inviting everyone to Peyrehorade in the south west of France for the third Summer Camp and Contest: "This year the contest is a step of the french flatland cup! So be there! Price money and a lot of goodies. Amateur , Expert, Master, Pro Qualification on saturday and Finals on sunday + a show on saturday in a night club."
Episode 10 of Can You Make It is here and it's super cool to see that Matthias and Alex keep working on this video series. Thanks guys! In this episode you learn the next rolling trick - the infamous hitchhiker ;-) Have fun learning that one!
